Tasting Note:

Bottled on its own for the first time in 2010. From middle and lower middle part of the vineyard that touches Cerequio at the bottom. A lot more open knit and less muscular than the 2010. Sweetly-scented , attractive, ripe fruit with a complex, but not too decadent, maturity running through it. Sweet Victoria plum fruit with a touch of strawberry, overlaying muskier sous bois, truffle and liquorice notes. Pliable, smooth but layered and with plenty of interest. Aged for two years in a mix of big and small barrels, light toast, French oak (15, 20, 30 and 35 HL sizes for the big barrels) followed by seven years in bottle before release.
